PHP does not barf at the extra lines. what could be happening is that the file
in question being edited (include_me.php) is included by some other PHP script
(some_script.php). If some_script.php loads include_me.php before issuing it's
HTTP headers, then the new lines (or any non-php-code text in include_me.php
will be sent out ot the client , BEFORE the headers, which , depending on your
error / warning settings, will make php complain, and will defnitely prevent
the intended action of the HTTP headers from happening properly.

back to the subject, i doubt that vi 'adds' a new line... i've used vi for
years (and yes, many times editing php scripts over ssh) and it doesnt save any
more lines than those already present... 
maybe you need to remove DOS ^M ? ( try converters/unix2dos ) - those are far
more likely to cause headaches on a cross platform environment.
